Cybersecurity Training & Personal Certification

Understand and interpret ISO/SAE 21434 correctly and perhaps become a certified Cybersecurity Professional with flexible training modules and personal certifications.

The development and safeguarding of safety-critical systems in automotive applications is an important part of development and operation. The ISO/SAE 21434 standard was developed to meet this challenge.

The standard aims to help developers and users achieve an adequate level of security, so that potential hackers find it difficult to carry out attacks.
